 I was there racing. I had a Marzocchi DH3 80mm travel and a Sintesi Bromont 100mm rear travel. We had to gain speed up to 60km/h to make the double on 2.0 tyres. That was the spirit. Nowadays bikes do most of the hard work for the pilot.
A GT com suspensão e triangulo traseiro fluorescentes é o Nuno Moca por exemplo. Marco fidalgo com a Parkpre, João Cordeiro na Sunn a ir ribanceira abaixo e a ficar maltratado... Vá lá em 96 ja havia guiadores sobreelevados e andava na altura com um prato de 50 dentes mas sem travões de disco q eram coisa rara ainda! Em 94 grande parte da malta, pelo menos no regional do Minho, fazia a prova de DH no Sábado com a mesma bike com que fazia a prova de x-country no Domingo. Cá fica um pouco da história do DH TUGA. Bons rides! Rui Silva
